Established over 70 years ago, Layher is the world’s largest producer and innovator of high-quality system scaffolding. Since its establishment, Layher has pioneered advanced scaffolding systems and is consistently at the forefront of innovation, safety and quality. All Layher material is manufactured at the company’s headquarters in Eibensbach, Germany.
South African subsidiary, Layher (Pty) Ltd, has been based in Johannesburg since 2011 and provides safety, simplicity and proximity in training and innovation. The company’s versatility and high standards of engineering and service provision mean that profitability and safety are not contradictory.
Skilled local engineers design, train and, where necessary, assist in the erection of scaffolding. Layher understands local needs and works closely with contractors and clients, ensuring the successful outcome of projects. The Allround scaffolding system is designed with high precision and allows up to eight connection points at the rosette.
A recent example of solutions Layher provides to local challenges, was the use of the Allround scaffolding system at the 51 m high tower, C9101 at SAPREF.
Contractor Southey Contracting (KwaZulu-Natal) used the Layher Allround system for maintenance work done on the tower, including stripping, insulation and grid blasting. The Allround system efficiently reduced risk with its lighter material, ensured safety
through ease of construction and saved time and money owing to the material’s versatility. The structure was fully boarded and had a comfortable staircase, much appreciated by SAPREF staff.
Layher engineers provided technical support and guidance throughout the assembly process. SAPREF sought a safe, economical and efficient solution to maintaining the tower, and the partnership between Layher’s high-quality Allround system and Southey Contracting’s resourceful work ethic, made this a possibility.
